I had no problems in my room and it was semiquiet sometimes but did not bother me. I would go there again. The office was clean and nice and the breakfast was good. There was small stores there that you can walk to. JN

All staff members (specially Manager ) that I dealt with were perhaps the friendliest I've seen. You can tell by their attitude that they truly enjoy working at this hotel. The hotel was very clean, inside and out. I look forward to staying there again. Keep up the good work.

Pictures a worth a thousand words! Found both dead and alive cockroaches in room. It was clear they had just "bombed" the room with insect killer as you could smell it n the air making it hard to breathe.. although you are probably better off sleeping with your mouth and nose shut at this hotel.

As we walked in the room it reeked of cigarette smoke (It was a smoking room, I've stayed at other hotels in smoking rooms and they did NOT smell this bad). There was dust laying everywhere (night stand, headboards, baseboards, etc), Headboards were falling off the wall. Outlets without covers. Floor looked like it hadn't been vacuumed. Table was falling... More

Horrible! The room had dead bugs on furniture & floor. The room smelt old. The pool was my window view & it was gross & nasty. The posted pictures do not represent a current facility. I do NOT recommend.

When reviewing my online bank statement I noticed an extra charge, when called to question about it, front desk said that when we checked out towels were missing. We stayed one night and had checked in late, we didn't take a shower but we noticed towels were missing but I didn't think about calling the front desk. Front desk clerk... More

Everytime I am spending the night in Forest City, NC it is the Quality Inn for me. The people are super friendly, the breakfast is well prepared. And the price is right. Centrally located, right across the road from the shopping center

Manager AB is humble person. He communicate with you during your stay. Location is close to everything and my room was perfectly clean. Internet was great as well. Breakfast they serve is continental breakfast. Look like they renovated property recently.

This is a nice place. AB is very nice and helpful at the front desk. New upgrades include carpet and paint. I stay there about once a month. Management takes pride in the property and it shows with the continuous upgrades.

As others have stated there were bugs. A/C was very noisey and did not preform well.The office had a very strong smell of incense. We had a no smoking room but the bedspread had a big burn hole in it. The place really needs to be refurbished or torn down.
